Grace: religious connotations?
When you hear the name Grace, do you automatically make religious associations to it?
We really like the name but are in no way religious- we like it simply for the sound of the name. Is it so common now it could be used simply because it's a nice-sounding name?

No religious connotations come to mind for me, but then, I'm not a religious person. Everyone has a different image/connection for every name, I think. For me, Grace just sounds, well, Graceful

It's my grandmother's name, so I more think of my grandmother, and how utterly amazing she is. But she is very religious, so I think that's another reason why I love Grace for a future daughter of mine, it makes me think of this amazing woman and what truly matters to her (and me). But the religious part is an undertone--I really don't think of it outright, and I don't think anyone would assume you were a religious freak if you named your daughter Grace. It's a beautiful name.Ashley
